Would you be a Parish Councillor?

posted 11 May 2017, 03:41 by Parish Council Communications
Freshford’s Annual Parish Meeting took place a couple of weeks ago. It was well attended, with around 50 residents plus parish councillors. The paperwork from the meeting is now on the village website, for anyone who may be interested, and here is a direct link to the Chairman’s presentation. For those residents who were not able to come to the meeting I hope you will be able to spare a few minutes to catch up with what has been going on in our community.

In particular, may I draw your attention to our need for residents to consider putting themselves forward as potential parish councillors. Whether you are younger or older, female or male, a new arrival or a long-term resident we would be delighted to hear from you. Membership of the PC is not very demanding - just one evening a month plus maybe a few hours when you can fit them in - and no special skills are needed, indeed a variety of backgrounds is just what we are looking for. Your involvement would be an interesting and rewarding way to make a positive contribution to our community.

We are currently two councillors short so the likelihood is that you could be appointed without the need for an election. There’s no need to make a commitment at this stage but please just consider the possibility. Reply to this email; contact Andrew Orme, PC Chairman, on 723606 or aclorme@btinternet.com for a chat; speak to any other councillor (details on the website); or just come along to a meeting and see for yourself, 2nd Mondays at 7.00 pm in the Village Hall.

We hope to hear from you.
